in the middle east. not a lot was heard about this during the campaign but here we are. syria is in terrible trouble. it's all around. here at home even, interfaith efforts have been cancelled because people couldn't agree about what to do about israel and palestine. what do you see in the middle east? do we have a moral obligation to intervene, for instance, in syria? >> well, that's something that really surprised me. i think we were all so focused on the election last year and of course a lot of the ndidates didn't want to bring it up because really tricky, difficult, difficult issues but i've been surprised by the lack of moral debate about this issue, not that i'm advocating that we intervene but i'm surprised that we, i haven't heard a debate about it. we saw in libya people saying, but just it's humanitarian intervention. there are people being slaughtered and children and dying and we have to do something to prevent genocide or to prevent all of these civilian deaths. it's happening in syria. we haven't had that same kind of a public conversation. that surprised me. and certainly, yo
time we told you about a troubling problem in syria for more than a year now, zaidoun has been our voice inside syria. he's 38 years old and i consider him a hero. he put his safety at risk. he told about the horrors of syria. he did it over and over, bravely speaking with us more than a dozen times. speaking truth to the ongoing lies the assad regime has repeer repeatedly told. he and his brother were taken away by syria secret police and they are being held. time is of the essence for their release. they've created a facebook page. they want us to tell their story in the hopes that someone inside syria, maybe someone inside the regime will listen. we are not for getting them and neither should you. i want you to listen to my conversation with zaidoun more than a year ago and why he was willing to put his life in jeopardy to speak with us. >> when i chant, i want freedom. i can hear my voice for the first time in my life. now, how can i give up this even if it costs me my life? >> what does that feel like to be the age that you are and to be able to hear your voice for the first t
